Two years ago my daughter was born and she wasn't breathing and had severe pneumonia. She had to be air flighted to a children's hospital to be able to have a chance to live. Unfortunately Arkansas Children's Hospital didn't have a free helicopter that night so we ended up going to Tulsa. (Which was an AMAZING place to be.) But I'm thankful for places like ACH who work hard to save children's lives every day. They hold a VERY special place in my heart. We have to go to ACH in a couple of months for something very minor for our daughter and no matter how big or how small the issue - I'm thankful that we live in a state with a children's hospital that has such a great reputation!
One of my good friends recently wrote a children's book called "Silly Sock". 50% of her sales are going to ACH. She is doing this in honor of her nephew who was born several years ago at ACH at 25 weeks weighing less than a pound. (Read Logan's story here on Jaimi's blog) This is a great way to raise money for a hospital who does so much! You can go here http://www.sillysockbook.com/ to purchase a book or even to donate one to go to a child who is staying at ACH! Little things can mean so much to a sick child and their family!
Do you have any stories or experiences with how ACH has helped you??? I know so many families in NWA have been touched by this great hospital! I'd love to hear your stories!
